i'm a technician at a toyota dealer near DC.

I was just wondering what the job market is like in your area.

Is the pay for experienced techs enough to live comfortably if you work hard?

where I live, it seems the pay does not compare well with other areas (down south) in terms of salary/costs of living. I'm looking at the prices of houses on a new builder's site in austin,TX and it is possible to buy a 3 car garage single family home with 2000 plus sq feet for under $200K.

Where I am, you are lucky to even have a livable "efficiency" condo for that price. unless you move so far outside DC that you spend over 2 hours a day commuting.

would love to hear from any techs out there.

thanks for posting!
